Revlon Lip Butter - Strawberry Shortcake

I'm a bit late with this post but I thought I would do it anyway. This is my second Lip Butter, I did a review on my other one in Lolipop! (link here.)

As I mentioned in my last post I thought these were over-rated a lot but I do still like them!

I won't go on and on because this is probably the 10,000th post on this lip butter.

This colour is a very summery colour, you can throw it on with anything and its beautiful. Its very subtle but just gives a nice flush of pink.

Obviously the 'butter' part makes them very moisturising and this gives them a very glossy finish.

Should I try any other colours?

Mac Dupe?!

As I have said many times before, Mac breaks me out... fantastic. I wouldn't mind so much if it was any other brand but Mac does such a good selection of face/ cheek products. I decided to hit the shops and find dupes for some of the well loved colours. 

This is the first and only make up I've brought from the body shop. Not for any particular reason I just forget they do make up. 

This 'Baked Bronzer' is awfully similar to the well loved Mac Mineralize Skinfinish's and personally just as good! I have used this bronzer everyday since I brought it, it gives a lovely natural highlighted sun kissed glow to your cheeks. I honestly think that this is as good as the Mac Mineralizes. 

My only slight issue is the price, £16!? Seems rather steep for 'The Body Shop' Makeup I thought personally. Although I suppose you are supporting a company who is ethically correct, I dread to think what MAC is like. Added to the steep price , the packaging is a bit... I don't want to say cheaply, but I don't know how else to describe it, I'm going to stick with, poor quality.

I am overall extremely impressed with my little find.
